This project is aimed at empowering women in urban slum areas of Borabanda by providing free sewing and tailoring skill development training to make them self-sufficiency and self reliant.

Background information of the identified Area:

The most pathetic, vulnerable destitute poverty stricken people very much isolated dwell amidst huge buildings of R R District, just adjacent to Hyderabad at a distance of 15 kms of State Andhra Pradesh, India.

A target sample of 30 women, identified from Borabanda slum area are given the opportunity to undergo training in sewing.


  • To train needy, desperate, poverty stricken women, single parent, widows and women working as domestic servants.


RDOET (HAO India) identified and selected a set of new batch of 15 deserving women folk in the nomadic colony of Borabanda to provide training in sewing and tailoring. During these 3 months training the women were taught all the basic handstitching works, and even to operate the machine and all the technical terms. 

We are excited to report that the women with great interest and enthusiasm learning sewing and tailoring.  Within a short span they learnt all the basic handworks stitching and even started operating the sewing machines by stitching small sample dresses. Learnt to do picco for the sarees, fall stitching, etc., They will learn to do the cutting for blouses, children’s dresses, etc., in the following three months and will be completely trained as tailor to live on their own.

The women folk extend their thankfulness to all our valued Donors of Global giving for their valuable support.

On behalf of these women, we extend deep gratitude to the donors for their valuable support, without which these women would have not availed all these opportunities.

We prayerfully request the global giving Donors to come forward to help these women to complete their skill training by their generous support.

With kind regards,


Dr.(Mrs). P. Usha Abraham
